Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has ruled out a return to the English Premier League this January as reports of interest in him from West Ham and Stoke City intensifies.

The former Sunderland forward has been touted as a potential solution to strugglers West Ham and Stoke City’s goal scoring problems but he insist his primary interest is to see Al Ain through the season and decide what happens after the world cup.

“There are a lot of offers but I don’t really know. I have to finish with the World Cup in the summer and I will see whether I am still staying Al Ain or not but I’m still happy in Al Ain,” Gyan said.

“I don’t want to move in January. I just want to concentrate on playing for the club, we are in a bad situation at the moment and one of the important players cannot leave just like that, it is not a good thing.”

Gyan has not scored for Al Ain in three games, his longest spell since arriving in the UAE in September 2011while his club have won only once in their last six games. His top priority is to see Al Ain through their present difficulties.

I am not even thinking about leaving the club, I want to achieve something big here and we will sit down [after the World Cup] and see what happens.

“Definitely if you are doing well you will be attractive to teams. Teams are coming all right but I’m still focused on Al Ain and I will make sure we overcome this situation.”

    I still don’t understand him Gyan, ,I’m sorry to say I see as a selfish and greedy guy has decided to work less and more by playing with part time oil workers. He has chop enough of the oil money and is time to move on to a competitive league. I still can’t understand why he was given the captaincy. Eto and Drogba were getting much than he Gyan is currently earning but yet decided to take less and may joined chelsea and galatasary for football reasons and they’re all happy. H

      Bro, in addition to that Asamoah Gyan is a CHICKEN, a coward and a money grabber rather than being one of the best in the world. He’s scared of competition and uses the Black Stars as a cover. In most countries he will not even be in the national team. He is not at par to anyone of the strikers from Africa nor the world in general. Who is he better than in Africa? No one.

      I am sorry to say that its only the GFA, Akwesi Appiah that keeps propping him up in the media and elsewhere, because he is their god Father, channeling lots of money and gifts to them, so how can they not call him to the national team. In Africa he is nothing close to the best ala Etoo, Drogba etc. he will carry their jockstrap and that is why he never wins any African awards.

      My message to Asamoah Gyan is, “STOP PREYING ON INFERIOR FOOTBALLERS IN UAE, SHOW YOUR MANHOOD AND PLAY WITH THE BIG BOYS IN EUROPE, duplicate your achievements in UAE in Europe, then you can scream loud that you are one of the best. Other than that SHUT UP.

    It is very very sad. I don’t know what our captain is afraid of. Just going on loan for only 4 months too you won’t do. We are not asking that you leave Al Ain permanently. Smallsacrifice until after the world cup so that you go back to the uae to continue your holiday after the world cup. You are missing lo a of chances even at Al Ain where you are not challenged by defenders. Why don’t you move to a more competitive place where you will be put in the right shape for Brazil. Oh Lord!
